StreetWise Partners Tasting Event

15th Anniversary Celebration: Savor the Taste of Success

June 6, 2013

StreetWise Partners is a career development program that helps low-income individuals to break the cycle of poverty by pairing them with professional mentors who provide job skills training and career coaching. StreetWise Partners hosts a tasting event with 40+ food and beverage vendors and over 500 guests.

For their 15th Anniversary Celebration, StreetWise Partners aimed to raise the profile of their annual Taste of Success event and hired Events with Ginger & Co. to help. Our role included keeping track of the committee’s silent auction solicitations and preparing them for display at the event, development of an upgraded run-of-show and program for the event, and volunteer coordination and on-site management.

The result was a tasting event attended by 700 guests, new and exciting features including a touching video to kick off the program, donation stations scattered throughout the venue, a photo booth provided by Social Pix, special VIP gifts and over $200,000 raised for StreetWise Partners’ mission.


Ginger and her staff were highly organized and diligent throughout our event planning process! It was great to know they were there every step of the way to keep our committees on track and execute a fantastic event with us!

Many thanks to you and your team for being our “wedding coordinator” last night. I felt like I was in that JLo movie as you magically made things run smoothly, and always with that calm easy smile! Thank you for your work.
